PROGRAM DATES, COSTS, AND DEADLINES
The ART 3700 Artistic Monuments of Sevilla, Córdoba and Granada course is offered in English and Spanish.
This course is designed for students that, in a short space of time, want to get to know Andalucia´s diverse culture through the monuments of its three main cities: Seville, Córdoba and Granada. It offers an incredible trip through time that will transport students all the way from Arabic mosques and palaces to Christian churches and cathedrals, whilst also experiencing typically Spanish expressions of culture. The city itself is used as the main classroom or textbook for this course, as the students will visit different places every day that have made these cities so crucial to Spanish history and art.

A student must have at least sophomore standing at the time of participation.
A student must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 grading scale.
A student must be in good academic standing at the time of participation.
No prior knowledge of Spanish is required for both courses taught in English. For the ART 3700 Artistic Monuments of Sevilla, Córdoba and Granada course taught in Spanish 5 semester college - level Spanish is required.
All students participating in our program are placed in carefully screened Spanish homes, usually in pairs. Living in a Spanish home is one of the most important aspects of the students’ intercultural experience because it helps to improve language skills and increase cultural awareness, two key goals of the program.
Naturally, adjustments with regard to customs, food, and heat must be anticipated by the students. SAIIE does take dietary and other personal restrictions into consideration when assigning students to their host family.
The principal goals of increased fluency in the language and greater familiarity with the culture are an integral element of the experience that SAIIE strives to provide. Therefore, all students must live in Spanish homes; that is, no students are allowed to live independently in their own apartments or in any other housing situation that is not approved by and under the direct supervision of the Institute's staff.
ACADEMIC CREDIT, GRADING, AND TRANSCRIP
Credits are certified by UW-Platteville and will be validated on an official UW-Platteville transcript at the end of the semester. Credits earned also become part of an official academic record at UW-Platteville.
While all credits should be transferable, please note that if you wish any of your courses to fulfill specific requirements for your major, minor, or general education, you must seek the necessary approval from the appropriate person(s) from your home campus.
NON UW-PLATTEVILLE STUDENTS
When you are accepted into the SAIIE program you should inform your academic advisor and study abroad office at your home campus about your intent to go abroad on our program.
You will remain enrolled at your home institution as a "degree-seeking" student. You will be enrol at UW-Platteville for only the term you are going abroad as a "special student."
After being accepted into the program you will need to identify the courses that you would like to take at SAIIE and find out what paperwork is necessary from your home campus to ensure transfer credit.
Most campuses have a document or form for you to complete. This form may be called something like "international study course approval form" or "study abroad transfer credit form." You must complete this form in full with all necessary and appropriate signatures (from academic advisors and department chairs) to ensure credit transfer.
To acquire approval, some department chairs at your home campus may request to see course descriptions for the courses you intend to take abroad, or the syllabi for approving transfer credit for a articular course. Above under the information in program structure you can find the course syllabus.
At the end of the term you will receive one official UW-Platteville transcript for the term abroad with SAIIE. This transcript will be sent to your home school's Registrar's or Admission's Office for transfer credit.
GRADING & TRANSCRIPTS
SAIIE students are graded according to the specified criteria in each syllabus. Generally speaking, for each course there are three exams per semester. In addition to this, there will be various quizzes, oral presentations and pieces of homework that each student must complete. Assistance is also an important factor which we take into account when grading students.
All students participating in the SAIIE program will be issued a grade report upon completion of the program which will be sent to the address requested by the student. They will also be issued an official transcript from UW-Platteville.
Only one official transcript is provided by the Institute for Study Abroad Programs office. For information on how to request another official UW-Platteville transcript for a student who has completed a program with SAIIE please visit the UW-Platteville Registrar's Office website at: https://www.uwplatt.edu/registrar/transcripts
